The Red Sox announced that minor league outfielder Ryan Westmoreland is currently undergoing treatment at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. General Manager Theo Epstein made the announcement.
Westmoreland, 19, will continue to go through physical and occupational therapy while at Spaulding. He has been making steady progress and is in great spirits.
On March 16, Westmoreland underwent surgery at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, AZ to remove a cavernous malformation in his brain. After spending several days at that facility, Ryan made significant gains in his rehabilitation and was cleared to return to Boston to continue the recovery process.
On behalf of the Westmoreland family, the Red Sox express sincere appreciation for all of the support and concern for Ryan. The Red Sox also ask that the media please continue to respect the Westmorelands’ privacy and refrain from contacting them regarding Ryan’s condition.
